We are quiet pleased with how the broilers are doing even though the weather here has been a bit cold. It will probably be 2 more weeks, before the big day. We are making room in the freezer and planning a cook out. Broilers are a hybrid chicken created for the soul purpose of food. If you want to raise your own meat these Cornish rocks are a good choice. They grow fast and since they are to be butchered when they are young they are tender.
